Powder “Fridhemsplan”

Born Free Records tell it exactly like it is. Their no-frills approach to disseminating far-spanning dance music is both evident and effective. And, despite the distinctive lo-fi-ness, the calibre of music is second to none. Born Free bosses and Stockholm’s duo Sling & Samo have used the label to premiere music from the likes of Axel Boman, Baba Stiltz and Jaakko Eino Kalevi – as well as sounds of their own. This month they introduce their second release by enigmatic Tokyo-based producer Powder. Her Born Free follow-up to the Spray EP comes in the form of a three-track variety show of quirky electronic sounds. Our pick of the bunch – “Fridhemsplan” – takes a more serious turn from the A side. Delving into quietly bubbling analogue sounds layered up as opposed to progressing throughout – all reminiscent of your favourite minimal producer from Berlin.

Catch BF22 dropping at the end of this month.
